Foster Care

Many of the animals we receive are too young and or vulnerable to house at the shelter. Often these youngsters just need a few more weeks to grow, establish immunity and heal from their spay or neuter surgeries. Sometimes we have pets that have undergone a major surgery and need to heal in a quiet, home environment. Occasionally we have pets that need more socialization or a break from the stress of being in the kennels and need to into one of our foster homes for some minor behavioral modification.

Saving Grace provides foster care only for adoptable pets, not for privately owned pets.

Foster care volunteers provide a temporary, loving home environment for these special animals. Our foster families have the room to keep our animals separate from their own pets. (This is usually a spare bedroom, office or guest bathroom – anywhere a door can be kept closed.) They also have time to dedicate for the special care and attention that our pets need. Saving Grace can provide pet food and any needed supplies or equipment. Our foster volunteers provide the home, the love and the transportation for the pet.

If you are able to assist us in fostering these special pets, please complete a Volunteer Application.  Once your completed application is received you will be contacted to schedule an orientation.
